Blog Dare Day 2 - To Do List/Bucket List

So proud of losing yet another tooth...she may live up to my nickname of Toothy;-)
Alright, Day 2 of the Blog Dare:

The 2011 To - Do List

What would you like to accomplish this year? What are the places you would like to visit in 2011? What do you hope to check off your bucket list in 2011?
What would I like to do, accomplish, go to or check off my list this year?  I don't know...I guess simply put, I would like to write a bucket list.  I know that many people have done one and I love reading them.  I am just not sure that mine would sound all that exciting.

When you write a bucket list, do you pick things that are attainable? Or do you pick things that you could only dream of doing?  I wasn't sure...

I guess I can start my list here with some things that I know are reachable, without totally copying yesterdays post, here goes: 

  • I would like to organize our house a little more.  Make better use of the space here.  I would like to work on a regular cleaning list so we can keep the house looking nice all the time (like at work) instead of the obligatory cleaning that happens when we KNOW someone is coming over, or the constant apologizing when people come over without us knowing.
  • I would like to start working on helping Faith toilet train.  I don't know if this is ever, really going to happen, but if I can start to build a routine for her then maybe she will catch on?  Wishful thinking at least.
  • I want to find another unique holiday vacation (still within Canada) that we can do with the older kids this summer (still planning on leaving Faith home for a week again).  Any suggestions?
  • We need to actually book our holiday out of the country, now that Pete has booked his April week off...anyone want some extra kids around Easter time?  (They are cute;-)
  • I would like us to be better with a budget and actually stick to one this year.  Far fetched?  We shall see...
Anyhow, I think that is as far as I am going to go today.  I think this will be something that I will try to keep adding to as things arise.  This kinda sounds like resolutions, or goals...but I guess they are a little different. 

How do you write a bucket list?


  1. My bucket list is some what of a dream as well as attainable things

    My family (really just my husband and I - his are dreams, mine are attainable)

    - golf st andrews
    - see masters live
    - buy land w/house or build
    - take kids to NZ/AUS
    - eat seafood on east coast
    - travel across Canada

    Hope this helps :)

  2. I have a few things on my bucket list -

    - dipping my toes in the Mediterranean Sea
    - visiting Greece
    - walking where Jesus walked
    - touring Australia and New Zealand
    - seeing a bull moose with full rack in the wild

    and probably lots more I can't think of right now. I should write it down again... I lost it when we moved. :(

    OK, Ruth, I decided to take the Dare, too... I'm in. And it's all your fault! LOL! 2011 Blog To-Do List

  3. For cleaning and organization I use FLYlady. I also have an outreach worker who comes over once or twice a week. Still, I'm not organized or clean by any stretch, but I am better than I was when I started.
